Does Testosterone Lower Risk of Heart Attacks and Stroke? | Medical Research News and I... - 0 views

  •  
    This is a short interview of the author on a recent retrospective review that revealed no increase in cardiovascular events in men.  The author rightly points out his data, which is quite different than the previous JAMA and PLOSone publications which showed an increase in cardiovascular events.  

    However, the lead author points out the main problem with comparisons:  his study group was younger and healthier.  So, the comparison is apples to oranges.  Studies still point to increased risk of Testosterone therapy in men with pre-existing CVD.  This new study does not refute this point at all.  

    Another serious flaw here, is that only Testosterone was followed.  This logic is seriously flawed as I have previously documented.  The author points out the flaw in the levels in the JAMA study post treatment.  But he fails to account for the the lack of adequate pathway assessment i.e.aromatazation.  Also, no inflammatory cytokine evaluation was performed in that study.  Both of these should have been highlighted.   

    In contrast, a positive was the length of follow.

    Small study of 154 men post 1rst stroke finds a reduction in a second ischemic stroke with Testosterone therapy.  That equals a 7.1% risk of secondary stroke in the Testosterone treated group (diagnosed with low T) versus 16.6% in the untreated group.  Testosterone was started one week after the first stroke event.
